KTCU sets sights on offshore alternatives in 2018

The Korean’s giant saving scheme has a greater appetite for foreign alternatives in 2018.

Korean Teachers’ Credit Union (KTCU) will actively seek more floating-rate and direct lending credit investments to capitalise on the upward trend of US interest rate.

Additionally, it also eyes offshore commercial real estate debt opportunities, especially through senior and mezzanine strategy, for the downside protection.

In 2018, KTCU sets its target allocations for domestic and offshore alternative investments at 26.1 percent and 28.2 percent of their total assets respectively. More, it expects to grow their total asset size by over KRW2.3 trillion to a total of KRW27.3 trillion.
